YouTube Saturday - CERN - The MoEDAL Experiment

This week's slice of YouTube science is the an excellent animated video describing the seventh detector approved for use in CERN's Large Hadron Collider - The MoEDAL Experiment. MoEDAL stands for the Monopole and Exotics Detector, a sensor searching for hypothetical particles magnetic monopoles (essentially magnetic particles with only one magnetic pole). If MoEDAL were to find these particles it would greatly improve our understanding of the universe and the forces which have created it.
